"A man-sized sentient machine resembling a chitinous crab or insect. Physically weak but highly intelligent, they utilize a radio-electronic gestalt to share data."
―Racial description.

The Tan Ru are a technologically advanced species of robots found in Sector Prime of the Milky War, sending automated ships out of their hive planet Quarnix to seek new technologies and resources. It has not been possible to constructively interact with the Tan Ru in any form, their gestalt appears to translation software as a nonsensical line of computer code, and they only see alien spacecraft as another resource to extract, leaving their purpose or origin to be a complete mystery.
